From Wild Oats Natural Marketplace. Looks irresistible and had to post for safekeeping. Note: Since posting this, I have made this several times due to popular demand. It was the star of my Thanksgiving feast.

What a great tater recipe!! I love red skinned taters, they work so well in this, and most other, recipes. I made this as written and used an Irish Cheddar Cheese (Kerrygold's). Served as a side to grilled steaks and green beans, so good!! I left mine quite chunky, as I didn't want a total mashed tater side and I probably added more then stated chives, love them. Thanks for sharing the recipe, made for Culinary Quest 2015.
